ZenChat / Re: Alesis DM10 Pro Kit
« on: September 14, 2011, 12:41:25 AM »
Anyone thinking of buying Alesis should be aware that RMC Audio, one of the biggest edrum retailers in the US, has stopped stocking all Alesis products due to poor service support. RMC would be aware of industry standards because they sell Roland, Yamaha, Hart and other brands.

The project is being co-ordinated on vdrums.com - http://www.vdrums.com/forum/showthread.php?69670-Isn-t-it-time-for-the-third-international-edrum-collaboration
Once all the sign-ups are in, we'll email links for the downloads and instructions for the footage.

We're co-ordinating an international edrum collaboration video. Basically, each drummer will contribute a few bars to a click track or bass line and they'll all be edited into a video displaying the versatility of electronic percussion. It's not a drumming contest, but an opportunity to share and work together.
Here's a link to one we did last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IGVq8VBvSI
I'd really like to see some diversity this time, and ethnic-style finger drumming on a Zendrum would be a great addition.
anyone interested in participating, please shoot me a PM.

Hey Darin, it looks like you're turning an awesome product into a sublime offering. Looking forward to seeing these and finding all the stuff I don't understand.

A potential buyer in Melbourne had contacted me looking for someone to show him their Zendrum. Anyone from Melbourne here?

The August issue of digitalDrummer will be out at the end of the week, featuring an extensive interview with Zendrummer John Mahon (what a nice guy!).
There's also a look at Zildjian's Gen16 AE hybrid cymbals and a head to head (or is that ear to ear) review of in-ear monitors - and heaps of other interesting stuff.
For VST fans, there's a huge special section on the topic, with a new Q&A column by John Emrich.
If you've already "subscribed", you'll get an email alert when the magazine goes live. If you haven't, jump online now and register for free: www.digitalDrummermag.com
And for each person who clicks on the Zendrive ad, Dave will pay me 10 cents, so please help me earn enough to buy one of those suckers!!
See you on the site.

How would Dave deal with a left-handed Australian?

Smooth as silk. Dave was very helpful - and shipping was a breeze. PM me if you want more info.

I just connected my laptop using a PreSonus Audiobox USB, which seems to be a really good entry-level unit. I had a few issues the first time out, with a Windoes Blue Screen of Death - I suspect a driver conflict, but a reboot overcame that. I was also using the Audiobox as a mic pre-amp, but got an off click noise that just wouldn't go away, so I have to play around and sort that out.
At first glance, the Audiobox drivers seem to be better than the ASIO drivers, with less latency. They work well with BFDeco, AD and NI, but I still have some tweaking to do to get EZdrummer to trigger without adequately. At the moment, the latency is way out there.

You must be so proud.
My daughter just did her Grade 7 French Horn exam, sings in the Australian Girls Choir and has no interest in anything percussive - despite being told by her choir conductor that she's a born percussionist. (That's after she was chosen to play the clave part to accompany the choir when they opened the Australian Pavilion at Expo in Shanghai.
The older daughter writes songs, sings, plays guitar and violin - but also has no interest in drumming. She doesn't even want me to drum on her recordings!
Tough life, isn't it?

I think one of the keys to success is setting up "correctly". After a couple of months messing around with various trigger allocations, I stumbled on an arrangement that is much more logical and easier to play and the results are significant.
However, I guess at some point, you have to stop messing around and just master what you've got.s
And I, for one, am blown away when I see what some people can get out of their Zens. My one disappointment is that there are so many great players here who don't share their performances. So come on, let's see more vids posted!

.. they have me go into two separate direct boxes converting the 1/4" connectors to two XLR's
I've been told by a number of people to avoid DI boxes - specifically for drum modules. Not sure if the same applies to laptop output.

The May edition of digitalDrummer (www.digitaldrummermag.com) is now live, with its regular line-up of new gear, informative profiles and useful advice.

The latest issue features an in-depth review of the DrumIt Five 2box kit, the new kid (or is that kit?) on the block attracting plenty of attention.

There are a few head-to-head reviews in the magazine – auxiliary triggers, e-cymbals and lite VSTs.

One of our biggest coups is a tell-all interview with the “father of modern e-drums”, Dave Simmons. The SIMMONS founder shares the highs and lows of his iconic brand – and his views on the shape of e-drumming in his wake.

The magazine also includes a rare insight into the making of a VST, with Chris Whitten sharing the behind-the-scenes action from his latest EZX project.

Read all this and more in the latest edition of digitalDrummer – and feel free to share the magazine with your friends, peers and customers by simply forwarding this email on.

We're sure there's plenty to keep you informed and entertained in the latest issue.
